WHERE ARE YOU, LORD?

Where are You, LORD...

When my dreams are squashed flat...
Trampled underfoot by condemnation...
Trashed by derision...
Burnt to ashes by scorn?

Where are You, LORD...

When my world SEEMS to be falling apart...
When so many things happen at once that I SEEM to be drowning...
When I struggle and struggle to draw close to You...
Yer somehow don't manage it?

Where are You, LORD...

When I am NOT all that my husband needs me to be...
When I am NOT all that my children need me to be...
When I am NOT all that other people need me to be...
When I am NOT all that You Call me to be>

Where are You, LORD...

When those I love are held captive in the enemy's camp...
When they are worshipping false gods...
When they seek self-gratification as only the lost can...
When they are blindly groping, trying to find a meaning to life?

Where are You, LORD...

When the former ways of finding You no longer work...
When I can't SEEM to find new ways of drawing close to You...
When everyone else SEEMS to have it all sorted out...
When I can tell other hurting souls how much You Love them - and not feel it myself?

Where are You, LORD...

In this sea of despair...
Gently Holding me in Your Arms of Love...
Gently DRAWING me deeper into Your Presence...
Consistently working things out for me, what other hope have I???
